If you’re in Davis – and many of us are – you might have picked up today’s Davis Enterprise. If you did, you might have seen the first of the annual ‘Welcome to Davis‘ editions. I have always enjoyed these, and in the past would usually leave them in our lounge for new students to read and learn fun stuff about our city. This year, these special editions (of which there will be four) feature my sketches of Davis. Today’s paper, the ‘Only in Davis’ edition, has a close-up of one of my Toad Hollow sketches blown up large, and also has a write-up about me on page two. How exciting is that!! I am pretty massively honoured.
Many thanks to Tanya Perez, editor of these excellent editions. Tanya also wrote a lovely article on Thursday (“What’s the greatest talent? The one you don’t have” – see the article here) which made nice mention of me and my sketching, and showed off my phonebox drawing.
These are posted courtesy of the Davis Enterprise. It’s not the first time I’ve been in the paper, there was an article about me back in 2009 (here’s the blog post; I must dig out the article) and a short piece about my show last December, but it’s certainly the most prominent. See also: http://www.davisenterprise.com, and the Davis Enterprise Facebook page, and don’t forget to pick up the other editions this Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
One thought on “have i got newspapers for you”
Wow! It is great to see that you get recognition for your lovely sketches. Congratulations! One of these days I will make it to a Davis sketchcrawl. Will you please autograph my book?
